Snow Limits Downtown Parking In Northampton

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) — Leftover snow from the weekend storm is making parking difficult on side streets in downtown.

It was frustrating for the hundreds of couples that flocked to the dining destination for Valentine’s Day.

“A lot of spots were blocked, but we made a couple of passes probably like two or three maybe ten minutes of looking we found a spot,” said Anthony Santos.

“It’s too bad for Valentine’s Day it wasn’t ready for us,” said Jennifer Bixby, mangers Paradiso.

Bixby says the snow has been impacting them all week.

“Our business has been good, but I think it has effected us a little but because people just get frustrated and leave town,” said Bixby.

Thursday night the limited street parking created lines at the city parking garage.

DPW crews were scheduled to start clearing the side streets around downtown early Friday morning.  Because of that a partial parking ban is in effect. Click Here for details.
